I use a Q-tip. I insert the Q-tip very far up inside the nostril on the side where pain is only. I keep a glass of cold water handy to drink until the burning lets up. You will probably sneeze a bit. I read that if you do this maybe 5-6 times a day for awhile (I did it for about a week) that it desensitizes the nerves that are sending that pain messages to the brain. I know it helped me. I'd give it a try.
